508 #18: An infusion of enthusiasm


Published January 18, 2008
Topics 508, podcast, Worcester


508 is a show about Worcester. This week's panel includes Brendan Melican.

Inspired by the words of City Councilor Bill Eddy, we provide an infusion of enthusiasm.

Economic Development Initiatives Status Report: "A start-up company that has developed a way to grow plants for cosmetics and health will be the first business to redevelop land in the South Worcester Industrial Park." Things are happening with the Mason-Winfield Lot. Mike agrees with Jeff, and disagrees with Gary Rosen, that the current wayfinding sign is not that great; Brendan informs us that much, much more is to come.

Brendan points out that the City is confusing the matter of median family income. Mike talks to Pat Moriarty about Worcester's community radio station, WCUW 91.3FM. The Lincoln Estate-Elm Park Neighborhood Association continues its public feud with Bob Bourassa. Jeff Barnard: "Now I wonder, have I ever actually laughed at a David Hitch cartoon?"

Anthony Hmura responds to our podcast with a third post about Grace Ross. Colin Novick provides an infusion of enthusiasm by encouraging the city to not pollute the river; Clive McFarlane makes an inaccurate Abbie Hoffman reference. A Holy Cross alum is writing speeches for Obama.

Mike will be running HBML on Jan 23, and recording interviews for the podcast with whoever stops by.
